tbh i don’t even know myself if that’s how yoriichi flirts on purpose or wholly accidentally
Jukedeck got bought out by Tiktoc……
This is terrible.
I just don’t get people that were geniunely confused by Aqua’s reaction to the Heartless hurricane though.
“But why was she so confident and then suddenly backed down??”
Um, she was confident when they were facing a normal little Demon Tide, something she’s faced before and felt she could handle. Did you guys miss the part where the little Demon Tide grew about 1000x its size and became a massive overwhelming force of darkness?
Is it really that mysterious why her attitude suddenly changed and she froze in place? Like, completely froze in a daze no reaction to getting swept up even??
It’s so obviously PTSD, why are people being purposely obtuse? We create all these mega theories in the KH fandom, but this one obvious thing is just too much of a leap for people?
And now that they’re showing what Aqua saw, suddenly people are like, “Oh ok. I accept it was PTSD now and why she froze up.”
To me, nothing has changed. She’s flashing back to her time in the dark realm. Now it’s spelled out syllable by syllable as if we’re stupid and people are like “Ohhhhh I get it now!’
I mean, I love the addition. It’s like a cherry on top for me, not an explanation.
Like, let’s take the situation and make it as easy to understand as possible.
Let’s take this wounded veteran, right? He’s been in the war zone for a while and recently got home. Most of the time, he feels fine but still recovering from his ordeal. A holiday is coming up, let’s say New Years.
His family is like, “Let’s buy some fireworks and have a joyous time!” Even he is like “Coolio! Just like old times! Can’t wait to set some off myself.”
Night comes. Time to set off the fireworks. All the sudden, he’s freaking out from all the sounds of fireworks. They sound like gunshots all around him. He freezes up. His reaction is unexpected to everyone around him, including himself.
You’d think, “But he was so excited for the fireworks before!“ Yeah, but PTSD doesn’t exactly work like that. Just because you THINK you’re prepared for something doesn’t mean you ARE. Your reaction in the moment might end up being completely opposite of what you expect! You can hype yourself up to overcome your trauma and still fail!
Anyway, I just find it so odd that people were still confused about Aqua’s obvious PTSD and really needed it spelled out for them like this.
Another coding update.
For years now, I’ve been struggling on what to do about reading the story on mobile and I think I finally figured it out.
A while ago, I commissioned a fellow developer to implement audio functionality into my project. I already had a skeleton of it, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it properly so I got some help. I asked em for some advice on what I should do about mobile and they suggested creating panels just for mobile.
I didn’t really want to do that, you know? That’s a lot of extra ‘settings’ to keep up with.
This is an example of a panel. You specific where the panel is on the canvas, and then all x/y coordinates of each corner. I have dozens and dozens of different panel types, imagine making special ones just for mobile?
I came up with a different solution. When in mobile, the panels will show up as full panels.
This way, for the most part, readers will be able to enjoy the story just the same. The only issue now is what KIND of mobile, because portrait will not work.
My solution in this case? I must figure out how to force the screen to stay in landscape mode. I’ve already looked into what I can do for this and there’s some manifest stuff I think I can do to make this happen. Maybe. (manifest.json is for web applications, which is what this is)
Another issue, if the user resizes their screen (which is unlikely to happen), the panels will start showing up in random places
So, I think in this case, I am going to force the page to refresh and restart the chapter should that happen. I will probably find a way to save the user’s spot in the story too so that they don’t lose their place. Maybe a warning that the page will refresh and a bookmark has automatically been created.
Now that this major issue is mostly complete, I am going back to focusing on getting the character models together. I’ve paused the character creating process to start on a definitive script for the first chapter. That way, I can decide what poses and outfits I’ll need to start off with.
I was hoping this year I’d have something to show, but I was clearly too optimistic. But at least I made some breakthroughs!

[One of my favourite scenes from the game~ I know it’s a simple scene but it just touched me q w q This is a scanned version btw~]
So, I watched Kimetsu no yaiba…
better late then never, haha
This visually-stunning art style has blown my mind! It feels like I’m looking at an ancient Japanese engraving, but in motion…and mysterious vild music fits so well! So i tried create smthing with that kind of atmosphere~
